How Marketers Use Agile to Create Effective Content

As a first-time conference goer, September 7-11, 2015 was a whirlwind! I met marketing professionals ranging from Australia, Florida, Montana, and even my native Washington, DC. I attended spotlight sessions from famous authors (cheers to you Jon Ronson) and even cracked up at a stand-up session by the ultra-hot comedian from Trainwreck (that’s right, be jealous – Amy Schumer).

Improved Email Tracking with EasyBox

Why Delivery Reports?

One of the main advantages of EasyBox over email is its ability to accurately track views and changes to attached documents. It does this by keeping attachments within a company’s SharePoint stored in an SQL database. In the traditional email setting, administrators can set read receipts so when users read the email, they are notified. However, the user can easily mark ‘read’ without actually reading its contents. This setting provides a loophole for users to appear responsible for reading their emails. And even if the email was read, you still had no insight into who actually viewed the attachments.

With EasyBox, you get reports of exactly who opened the messages and attachments. This enables administrators, and other users, to better understand who did what and when. Because the attachments themselves stay in SharePoint and all views and edits are tracked. That way, administrators are able to visualize and audit the full document lifecycle.

That’s why the Delivery Report feature of EasyBox is so powerful! Follow the simple steps below to learn how to use this feature to its full benefit:

Easy Dynamics Demos EasyBox at SharePoint Saturday DC

Easy Dynamics Demos EasyBox at SharePoint Saturday DCThis past Saturday, June 13, 2015, Easy Dynamics Corp was proud to sponsor and attend 2015 SharePoint Saturday DC at the Microsoft office building in Chevy Chase, Maryland. We enjoyed meeting and speaking with conference attendees about our first commercial product EasyBox, the only secure messenger for SharePoint. Use cases as correspondence management systems and as SharePoint adoption aides seemed to get the most user interest. We had a laugh with Adam Levithan, Product Manager at Metalogix Software, about interesting ways to spark conversations at our booth, as he suggested asking “What is your favorite soda?” Mine is Orange Fanta!
